Product Overview

This two-wheel tabletop robot was developed in collaboration with Purdue University.  These Purdue students are using it for their ME375 class during the summer of 2020 (and future classes).  They will receive this robot for a discounted price with the use of a provided coupon code from AndyMark.

This robot platform is intended for use in both university and high school classrooms. It can handle several sensor inputs and has robust drive motors with encoder feedback. The frame is a strong sheet metal construction with a hard-anodized finish.

The intent of this robot platform is to be used on classroom tabletops and floors, transported in student backpacks, and re-used from semester to semester.
